Handmade and pre-tested for your ideal reed

I started making reeds in my junior year of high school and haven't stopped for 11 years and counting. I used to sell my reeds to students and peers from my undergraduate degree, and now I love to sell them to anyone looking for a solid reed.

I usually spend at least 3 days over the span of 1-2 weeks on any one batch of 10-20 reeds. Each process they go through, they have to have time to dry and set properly. I shape them from pre-gouged, shaped and profiled cane for consistency, then wrap them with different colors, and finally scrape them down to a playable reed. after each scraping, I make sure to double check them on my own bassoon to ensure they will be in perfect playing shape right when they are delivered. I always sanitize and fully dry reeds before sending.
